philppine pesos but it depends on the exchange rate...350$ equals phil pesos..

Thank you. I wasn't sure if it was ok to pay with Philippine peso when the website states $350. So that kinda threw me off and I didn't want to pay that big of an amount without knowing first if the correct monetary. Thank you again.

its in Philippine Peso, all you have to do is go to the information desk and tell them you're paying for ur visa interview. Bring your passport and tell them your category, mine was k1 so I paid P15,750 (S 350.00). They will tell you how much in peso you will pay. You will fill the deposit slip named after US Embassy with their account number. You will also write your passport number and name at the slip. Go to the counter and pay the given amount to be paid and the teller will give you a receipt. Keep that receipt, that will be used when you schedule your interview online or thru call center. When you call the call center or do online, you will receive your UID number.

The BPI representative gave my fiancee the wrong information and made her pay only half of the required fee. How do we fix this? We were insisting that it was $350 but they kept telling my fiance that it was only half of the fee. Pls advise.

Thank you.

Hmmm...that's weird! Maybe you should wait until tomorrow and see if you can book an interview appointment. If you can book an interview appointment, then maybe you won't have to pay the other half of the visa fee.

Does anyone even look at the amount on the BPI receipt? Does the amount you paid show up in your electonic file at the Embassy or at their call center? Maybe the Embassy only knows that you paid, but does not know the amount. Wouldn't that be something...you would receive a visa at Black Friday prices! :)

hahaha.. that would be great for a "Black Friday" prices, and I wouldn't even have to wait for a long line with a mad crowd dashing. The BPI receipt that my fiancee paid was for only 6500 peso which was only half of the 15000 something pesos that everyone is paying. I know this is not going to be overlooked, but I would like to fix this as soon as possible. I am not sure if we have to go to the branch and insist paying on the rest of the amount. Or wait till the visa interview and pay the rest at the US Embassy. I'm just frustrated at the BPI employee for giving the wrong information. It's a setback which I'm hoping is not going to give us problem.

I've heard that BPI is giving a flat exchange rate of Php45 to the dollar so no matter what the daily exchange rate you pay Php15,750. That is how they make their profit for doing business with the USEM. Seams like a rip-off but what can you do.

wow....P45 for a dollar as exchange rate is too much when the current rate is only ranging from P43-P44, but yeah you're right, it's all about the profit, that's how it is here in PI sad to say. :(

Please validate your request number is correct and you have paid the correct amount for the visa you are applying.<<<<< Help!
